I am a teacher at an early intervention program that caters for children needing further support to enhance their social and emotional learning. The program is designed to address identified and underlying barriers to student learning and wellbeing. Such include: school refusal, disruptive behaviour, disengagement, an in ability to form positive relationships, deregulated emotional responses, under-developed conflict management skills, a reduced capacity for effective decision making, a lack of resilience and a negative self-image.
The Rock Adventure Centre is used by our students and staff once a term. The program delivered by the encouraging and friendly instructors is aimed at enhancing self- esteem, persistence, resilience and teamwork. Student are encouraged to challenge themselves mentally and physically by setting personal goals such as: reaching a certain height up a wall or by completing a specific climb.
Our students often leave the rock adventure centre proud of their achievements and full of self-confidence.
The new found self-confidence, trust and teamwork empowers them to become more valuable member of our community.
I have used The Rock on several occasions across a number of different year levels for a variety of learning outcomes and each of these sessions have been catered specifically for the groups need. Most recently, Richard, the owner of The Rock developed a lesson based around the technology used in rock climbing and the benefits this has had to the experience of this sport. This was extremely beneficial for my VCE Outdoor and Environmental studies class and helped them reflect on this for their school assessed coursework. The Rock staff have always been friendly and approachable but most importantly highly qualified which contributes to the overall positive experience. The two hour session included a warm up/technique session in the bouldering area where students learnt how to activate their core strength and incorporate balance into their climbing technique. The challenges set in this warm up were achievable for a range of students and encouraged them to continue working towards their goals. The students learn how to belay for each other which requires concentration and communication skills and also builds and sense of responsibility for others. The facility itself has a huge variety of climbing walls which range from beginner walls to more experienced. I would highly recommend The Rock to schools who are looking to further develop their outdoor and recreation subjects.
